PSH 15km

Decided to do a LSD although i have done a run with the CBD gang last nite....reached home earlier than before and i decided to do a PSH 15km. The route started in Sengkang going towards punggol from the west, run towards the east and exit back to sengkang running towards hougang before turning north along hougang ave 2 towards yio Chu kang road. left right and run towards buangkok green and run back to sengkang, ending at renjong LRT...this is what i called "PSH 15km" psh15k I had a difficult start. My legs felt heavy and i was landing like a big elephant...stomping the road. it took me longer and longer to get warmed up..maybe is due to the long hours sitting in front of the computer and my recent inconsistent running schedule. Running form has deteriorated and luckily my stamina is still able to last the whole run. After punggol MRT station, the legs began to get lighter...i decided to try turning into punggol road and follow the LRT line at the next junction. The road here is much better than my usual run at the other streeet which is full of traffic lights and vehicle fumes...the air is fresh due to the field and open land beside it....managed to maintain a almost 6min pace for first 5km....as i enter sengkang, the body still feeling weak and restless...i tried my best keep my pace in control....as i reached the 10km mark, the body more of less got lighter and warmed up. However, the last 5km route got more and more terrible as i was running beside heavy traffic roads.however, the route got more challenging as it consisted of slopes unlike the flat first 10km I dun really like this route as there are quite a number of traffic lights to cross. my 10th to 13rd km was disrupted by 3min wait time at 2 traffic lights.....about one and a half min was lost at my last 2km...The pedestrian path along this stretch of YCK road was dark as the road side lamp was sheltered by the large road side trees....some part of the path was quite dark....at abt 12.5km, i almost tripped over a tree trunk hidden in the dark, my right toes got a big knock against it...lucky i have changed my running style of lifting my ankles instead of bringing my feet forward, if not, the damages will be worst. reached buangkok green and decided to maintain the pace instead of the usual chionging up lopes...managed to finish in a time of about 1hrs 30min (minus away 4:30min of traffic light waiting time). Will take a 2 day break before joining the HSP for the Mizuno wave run route recce on sat morning shoes: Adidas Adizero SN total distance: 15.4 Kilometers total time: 1hr 34min 25sec average pace : 6:08 min/Kilometer lap 2.5km for 14:45min@5:54min/km 2.7km for 15:58min@5:55min/km 5.0km for 29:48min@5:58min/km 3.2km for 21:08min@6:36min/km 2.0km for 12:44min@6:22min/km
